I have a passion for cooking and making people happy through my food. I love trying new dishes and creating exciting elements for old favorites. I credit my mother for my skill. She allowed me to practice cooking dinner growing up. The meals didn't always turn out, but she supported me anyway!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking comfort foods like gooey mac and cheese, crispy fried chicken and flavorful collard greens. I also love healthy and fresh foods. I'm always finding new ways to spruce up a bland dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday meals are my favorite! My family and I always have the best time preparing the food and conversing. Then we get to eat all the delicious results!
As a native Marylander, I can't get enough of blue crabs in the summer! I like to buy them live and cook them in lots of beer. They're great with garlic butter. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked for 50 family members during the Christmas holiday several years ago. They all loved my food and asked me when I could cook for them!
My cooking tragedies
Once when I was learning to make biscuits from scratch, I added way too much baking powder and the batch tasted extremely bitter! Yuck!
